Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Editing and Processing

Sally challenges us this week to try different apps to play with post processing.

There was an opportunity to use some photos of street graffiti made, when passing behind a decaying building in Amsterdam, as I hadn’t yet used them.

You will see the original photo shot with an iPhone 6, and the changes after editing and processing with Silver Efex Pro 2, Olympus mobile editor, and Light Room.

If you wish, click to enlarge the photos.

I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge. 

Shot with an iPhone6.

The schedule theme for this week’s challenge is: Editing and Processing


I am also submitting it to the Photo Rehab.

  1. Hmmnnn, I think I need to get Silver FX Pro….
    I’m going to assume that last one is Wile E. Coyote and I like the way that the b&w one shows most clearly the character. I think my favourite it the first set – I love that profile view of the girl and the pink is glorious!
    What great street art x.


  2. Lucille, your set of images shows the effects that can occur with different editing apps. Some are subtle, while others are major. I’m partial to the partial color Olympus. Happy Photo Challenge.


  3. I love the colored ones (obviously), they are so rich and lively!:) I did not know about those apps, do you only use them on your comp or your phone as well? They aren’t free are they?


    1. Thank you, my dearest. Here is the answer:
      I use LightRoom and Silver Efex Pro 2 in my computer but both are not free.
      The Olympus mobile app is free.
      Try also camera + app. Its very good.
      For black and white you can use hueless. But I know you don’t like BW!
      Give a try and let me know.

  4. So, tell me again. Where is that wormhole you go into that allows you so much more time to do all these things?? I can’t even figure out how to work Instagram.


    1. I will tell you this: it’s easier than you think. If you just start using the editing options on Instagram, you will see that’s a fast process. Ask that student to install camera + app for you and start using it. Then you can later download the app Olympus image share. All free.

        1. I bet you would do fantastic post processing. It’s all about personal taste and these apps are self explanatory. Besides, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it?
          All your photos are wonderfully done. Editing them is just a further step.


  5. I love this street art and how you’ve edited the pics! And the fact that you shot it all on your iPhone 6 proves what a great cameraphone it is (and of course, what a great photographer you are!)
    I like all the edits you did but I especially like the ones in half color and half B&W…it’s cool to designate which part of the photo to keep in color and therefore allowing that part to pop out of the B&W.
    Bravissima, as always!


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
